Supporting communities, supporting individuals
- VistaJet offers complimentary empty leg flights for Governments and medical transportation;
- Using global infrastructure and expertise to help move critical medical products;
- Working with experts and leaders to identify new flying solutions for the global community.
LONDON, March 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VistaJet, the first and only global business aviation company, is helping to ensure that those with critical travel requirements during this time of uncertainty are able to keep moving.
Understanding the global community’s needs as the world works to respond to the evolving situation on COVID-19, VistaJet continues to identify new ways to be of help through its global network and infrastructure. The Company is working directly with Governments and Consulates around the world, helping them to repatriate citizens by providing complimentary empty leg flights. To further ensure that officials are able to keep their response plans as prompt as possible, the Company is assisting with the complex logistics of the necessary permits and paperwork.
As cargo flights drastically fall owing to the cancellation of major global commercial routes, and inspired by the incredible gesture of humanity seen around the world, VistaJet is also in talks with medical organizations, health experts and regulators to identify other solutions to help, including the transportation of key medical supplies. Additionally, empty leg flights are being offered complimentary for critical flights to transport medical experts to necessary locations as they help to fight the global pandemic.
Thomas Flohr, VistaJet’s Founder and Chairman, said:
“Everyone at VistaJet continues to assess how we can better serve our customers and the greater global community during these difficult times. Listening to expert advice, whether that be security, safety or medical, we are here to ensure that they are fully supported with their flying needs. This is an unusual time and one that we must all work together where possible to do whatever we can to help. We know we don’t normally offer repatriation flights or the transportation of medical equipment, but ultimately, we are a logistics company and we are here to help the global community as much as we can. We are in this fight together.”
The Company has created a dedicated web page to channel all requests from Governments and medical organizations to ensure prioritization, address the most critical cases and manage the relevant safety screening.
Additionally, with heightened market insecurity, many customers have been in contact to evaluate alternative options to meet their flying needs. Listening to their concerns, VistaJet has introduced its Dynamic Jet Lease — a short-term lease over one, two or three months, offering a dedicated aircraft and crew positioned at the nearest possible airport to you. It is a unique monthly lease providing the highest flexibility whenever needed, and especially when quick decisions are required. The Dynamic Jet Lease increases safety, releases customers’ core business resources and ensures peace of mind during a constantly-changing global landscape.
